Facilities Maintenance Helper (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – June 13, 2016
Dominion Resources is in most cases a fast-paced, safety-minded place to work. One never knows what to expect when he/she arrives at work. The jobs are extremely diverse, including: Electrical, Heating and Air maintenance, mold removal, painting, laying carpet, and even animal control. Generally, the Chain-of-Command runs very efficiently. Only on few occasions did it go way off course, Education is highly stressed, time-in-service is not even considered in job promotions no matter how good a worker is. Management, as a whole, is excellent. They know their jobs well and it shows by the productivity of those under them. Again, there are exceptions. Most of the time they will leave one alone as long as the job is being done safely. Co-workers usually work well together with only a few altercations. For the most part, there were no real hard parts of the job other than occasionally having to fit into extremely tight spaces to accomplish a job. The location of the office building on the James River was the best part of the job to me with a close second of the kindness and support of the executive staff and the other employees at Dominion Resources/Dominion Virginia Power. I learned a great deal at Dominion. Not only in how to perform my job, but, also on how to interact with people, both at and away from work.
Dominion is willing to pay for a person's education if they are willing to study hard.
Fire Brigade & Armed Nuclear Security Officer (Former Employee) – Kewaunee, WI – March 2, 2014
Relatively boring job with great training and compensation. With all security boring is good. I worked alongside some great people who worked as a team to see theirs and my success. The hardest part of the job was ensuring you were alert and ready for anything and nothing. The most enjoyable part of the job was the great pay and many days off.
Friendly place to work with an emphasis on Safety in your training programs.

I thoroughly enjoyed working at Dominion. Being electrically oriented, I felt that this was a perfect jobfit for me. It was very enlightening to see the application of the technologies used in the Industrial World to the Power Industry.
the distance from my house was my only complaint: 55 minutes driving.
IT Asset Analyst / Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – May 20, 2013
I work in IT and have seen the company go through many technology changes in a short amount of time. We have a dedicated team of workers in a variety of different IT roles. IT is one of the main core departments that is always on the leading edge of technology. Our mission for our internal and external clients is to always keep the company and all it's data safe, secure and available. There are many policy compliance rules we must follow on Company, State and Federal levels. NERC & FERC policies are always creating secure guidelines to keep all data safe & secure. We always have to be on the look out for vulnerabilities or cyber attacks. Our team plans and works together to meet all customer expectations in a timely manner. My current role allows me to analyze what hardware and software our employees need. We must utilize existing equipment to save money, but also, keep all hardware and software up to date. Overall, I love being in a position where I'm always learning about new technology.
